With Their Voices Raised… Take a journey through a turbulent time in history through the testimonies of Hiroshima and Pearl Harbor survivors and their hope for peace in the future.
With Their Voices Raised, is a theatre documentary based upon the recorded testimonies of Hiroshima and Pearl Harbor survivors. This performance moves from the initial surprise attack, to the “hell on earth” experience, and concludes with the journey of reconciling oneself with these life events. This documentary performance, through telling and re-telling of the survivors’ stories, both provokes and inspired an understanding of the pursuit of peace following war. The performance will culminate in a conversation exploring personal and world peace.
